DOWNLOADMendelson letter about Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (PDF format, 865 KB)

At-Large Councilmember Phil Mendelson rages on Al Gore-style. Last week, he sent a letter to Mayor Adrian Fenty arguing that he take more definitive steps to curb global warming, specifically in joining a multi-state initiative to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Maryland joined the initiative last year. So far, the District has not opted in.

Mendo writes: “While setting a target is a wonderful first step, a plan must be put in place to realize this goal.” The councilmember was able to snag the entire council dais into signing the letter.
